78 Regulate - Nate Dogg & Warren G

79 Moment 4 Life - Nicki Minaj & Drake

I can't believe female rap is this underrated. And for those people who keep whining how Nicki is super overrated, the reality is actually the opposite. Listen to this, one of her best songs, like, I don't even listen to Super Bass or Starships, excuse you.

80 What You Know - T.I.

"What You Know" is the greatest hip-hop song of all time because he disses Lil Flip hardcore. Not just because of the dissing, but of his lyrics. He can murder anyone in a rap battle.
